Nicoya - OpenSPR Instrument

OpenSPR is the world’s only benchtop surface plasmon resonance (SPR) instrument. It provides high quality, label-free interaction analysis for a fraction of the cost of existing solutions. Our unique nano-structured sensor surface uses localized SPR (LSPR) to deliver repeatable, highly sensitive kinetic data.


OpenSPR-XT is built with our cutting-edge and affordable nanotechnology biosensor platform. It has been seamlessly integrated with our robust autosampler system to allow for fully automated, 24/7 operation.

- Proteins Lipids

- Carbohydrates

- Antibodies

- Nucleic acids

- Small molecules

- Cells

- Viruses

- Nanoparticles & more



- Kinetics/affinity characterization

- Competition assays

- Target identification

- Epitope mapping

- Screening

- Yes/No binding

OpenSPR for biotechnology

Get started on your experiments in a matter of hours. OpenSPR is user-friendly and has versatile applicability. In smaller companies, the OpenSPR allows researchers to finish off their full experimental workflows at a low cost. In larger companies, the OpenSPR is easily integrated alongside their other assays.


OpenSPR is ideal for:

- Lead Optimization

- Quality control

- Drug discovery

- Validation

- Feasibility


OpenSPR for academia

Our mission is to improve human life by helping scientists succeed. By using innovative nanotechnology, we reduce the cost and complexity of SPR instrumentation and make it accessible to every researcher. Having OpenSPR in your own lab will eliminate the expensive costs and inconvenient travelling associated with using a shared instrument in a core facility.
